Answer: (1) 50 years
Explanation:-
Let be the age of father is X years and the age of his son is Y years.
According to the question,
In first condition –
X = Y + 30
X – Y = 30                           …………………. (1)
In second condition –
X – 5 = (Y – 5)
X – 5 = 3Y – 15
X – 3Y = – 15 + 5
X – 3Y = -10                  ……………………. (2)
Solve equation (1) & (2)
Y = 20
Thus, the age of the son is 20 years.
The age of the father is 30 + 20 = 50 years
Hence, the answer is (1) 50 years.
